the bed quilts

the hubby made the 4 yr old a bed for Christmas. (wood twin size platform type with drawers built underneath) the kiddo wanted the dinosaur bed he saw in the pottery barn catalog so i bought the pillow sham and made the quilt.  he wanted big squares and i wanted small squares but it was his bed so he got what he wanted.

then i fell in love with an anna marie horner quilt and decided to make it. this was crazy of me but i didn’t realize this until i was trying to cut 380 little triangles with my growing pregnant belly in the way.  i also decided to make it a queen size which goes to show i was completely out of my mind to take on this project right now. so many mistakes later…

this is probably the last time i will  attempt this quilt in this large a size.  i was temporarily insane.  it is very far from perfect but i love it and it is homemade and happy.
